I love Enjouji Maki's work. The mixture of the comedy, romance and smut make the sweet result of a really worth-reading manga. Thanks for Enjouji Maki sensei's work that we could have a great time reading great masterpiece. ^^
i love this manga. I've watched series of dramas and mangas about pretend marriage but this manga is my most favorite. the plot is, well, two-thumbs up! the art is very good also. you tend to compare Hokuto to other characters of the story and will realize that he is good-looking. Chiwa looks plain at first, but you'll turn to love her and find her cute throughout the series. It's hilarious and worth reading. I recommend to those people who wants to giggle about love and humor.
Great potential..hope its a long series
I think this is a very good plot to work with. Two people who marry for the wrong reasons end up falling in love later. The art work is appealing and the guy is hot enough to trigger a woman's fantasy. I am excited about this project because there arent enough mature romance mangas in josei catagory. The tint of smut makes it ever so more appealing!! This has great potential and I really hope it lives upto it. The crucial element for good smut is to paint the right background. The development of romance has to be there and the mangaka has to take her time giving the characters enough depth that the reader gets absorbed in their world. So I really hope this series goes in that direction. This mangaka has Private Prince in her previous works, so it gives me hope that this series could be long. So I would say the series is good so far and shows promise.The chemistry between the main two characters is really good!! I hope this series carries on for a while. There aren't enough series like this out there so I am definately rooting for this one!!

Man i really like it when the girl has some character.. this one's got hell a lot of character and I think the story's really cute and funny... Got me hooked on wondering what will happen to them though! Can't wait for more..
Wow. I like romance and I love sexual tension, and jesus does this manga have both. Yeah, yeah, it's cliched and unrealistic and some of the shots of them kissing make me wonder if that's even comfortable. But the potential of this manga is overwhelming. The drawing is great (and Hokuto is so hot he burns into my retinas). It's not artistic, but then again, that isn't the point. So far there have been a few overused plot devices, the marriage being one of them. But what saves this from becoming a wet dishy sop is Enjouji-sensei's excellent characters. While both Hokuto and Chiwa are stereotypical to a slight extent, they both seem alive and a little unpredictable, in a good way. Hokuto, for example, doesn't really seem to care for Chiwa, but as time passes his feelings appear (?!) to change. And while Chiwa admirably doesn't fall head over heels for such a lovely specimen of manliness (god, there was one picture of his back recently that made me want to squeal out loud), we see her struggle to preserve her integrity and her heart fighting against (what seems like to me xD) the inevitable. Of course she's supposed to be a stand-in for the reader but that doesn't stop her from being likable. To put it simply, it's fun. You want to see them get together, and while enough happens in each chapter to make you hot and bothered and a little satisfied, at the same time Enjouji-sensei is prudently pacing their relationship. Not to mention that there's great humor! I can't say that it's a "classic" manga full of soul-searching conclusions about the human condition, because it isn't. But if you like a little smut and romance you will adore this. So far it's been awesome, and each chapter leaves me desperately wanting more. This kind of story has the danger of getting dull later on (with the manga-ka increasingly reaching out for something to keep it interesting), but I'm hoping that it will continue for at least a few more volumes. Edit: Wow. Talk about drama. It hasn't gotten cheesy, yet, but my interest after chapter 6 has spiked. The compelling idea is that you think there might be a happy ending, but it seems almost impossible... The only thing is that I can do is cheer for Chiwa... Go, Chiwa! You can make it, no matter what happens! +_+

I love having Hokuto as my hubby *____*
Seriously, he's so patient with his wifey even though he once a playboy but that's also the reason why he can handle woman so perfectly right? The pair of this two is great too.Seriously, I can think how my future can be
Despite all that, the event is soo sweet and it end up with sweet ending actually between two newlywed. Chiwa preety interesting actually, with her super naive about man - but not stupid, idiotic character.
Funny and so cute KAWAII
i love this manga personally it is funny how they tease each other even though Hokuto can be a little cold i think he still loves her in her own way even chiwa loves him chapter 5 was so good
Spoiler (highlight to view)
she finally realize that she loves him even though hokuto and some other dude had to tell her she loved him and at the end she finally said it her self that her being angry wasnt because he doesnt consider her his wife that her heart races with they kiss and she feels dissapointed whenever they dont go all the way haha so freakin cute.
I love this manga it is my #1 since midnight secretary is over I will update this soon after the manga turns a turn in the story and they finnaly start realizing that really have feelings for each other i cant wait for the smut either hehe

Funny and sweet
I love this manga! I know it's only 3 chapters in (scanlated) but I can't get enough! It's sweet, funny, romantic. Yeah, the origins of the story aren't realistic, but once it happens, everything else seems pretty plausible, characters' actions anyhow. I can't wait for more!
This manga is definitely hot stuff. Lots of sexual tension and sweet romantic moments. The male lead, Hokuto, is actually pretty cute (personality wise). Plus, he's sexy as hell. The relationship between the two main characters is really great in this manga. Hokuto is really sweet to Chiwa. I don't know if he's really in love with her yet, but he sure is displaying all the traits of a man in love. There's lots of chemistry and lots of laughable moments. You'll have a great time reading this.
